The great-grandad guitarist with musical dreams


A great-grandfather is ready to make his mark in the music world after a hiatus of almost 50 years.

Jimmy Findlay, who lives near Lanark, was in a band in the late 1960s but gave it all up when he sold his guitar to pay for his wedding.

Now, he is reflecting on his life through his music and has played gigs, featured on local radio and even made some music videos in recent years.

He has big ambitions – including a dream to perform at the Royal Albert Hall.
